Webinar Description:
It’s high-stakes: These days, effective social justice training is urgent. We’re an education coalition working to change/train minds & hearts towards justice, and need all the tools we can get. We’ll discuss Arao & Clemens’ foundational 2013 piece, “From Safe Space to Brave Spaces: A New Way to Frame Dialogue Around Diversity and Social Justice” and explore interdisciplinary theories supporting brave space. We’ll dig into practical activities, metaphors, comics, and videos to take home for immediate facilitation use. Great for beginner through advanced, and those interested in being more intentional & just facilitators in any setting: in the field, classroom, or boardroom.
